About two weeks ago, before setting off on a trip to LA, I rented my first CitiBike and took it for a spin around NYC. The bus from NJ rolls into the Port Authority Bus Terminal around 42nd street and I had to get down to SoHo. I didn’t have a ton of time to ...

Bikes in Calgary.
This is just a little update from the road! So, we’ve covered a lot of ground so far. I came up from New Jersey to meet James in Ottawa and we’ve been on the road since then. Just so you know, we are driving, not biking. It’s quite unfortunate, but we just can’t do this ...
